I work for Cascadia in a secure facility for chronically mentally ill. We work with the police when residents decompensate and become violent. The police that help us have been wonderful in the last year. I don't know if its just the North presinct, but they have been kind, gentle, and understanding with our people. It's unfortunate that the State Hospitals are so full that people are released before they are ready, decompensate, then end up interacting with the police. Too bad we are closing state hospitals. Things will just get worse.
